There is a phrase in Ireland that says, “There is no fireside like your own”. I agree with the sentiment wholeheartedly. I love that I have my own place and that it represents me and all the things that make me happy. I more importantly love sharing it with everyone around me. I love when people come over to visit and they comment about a painting, the holiday decorations or the smell of something cooking. I think it is important to feel the essence of the person as soon as you step over the threshold.
I am very lucky that I get to open my home to a friend for the weekend. Yes we will be out “playing” but at night we will be able to come home and share in my “fireside”. That is very rewarding for me.
So in honor of that and the fact that I have a ton of things to get ready before the friend comes; I am not posting anything but pictures of things that I have made, looked at, or decorated with while in my home.
Come by and see me 🙂

I love your post, Jenn………..and I love the quote, “There is no fireside like your own.” I think that’s true. Your home really does represent you. I’m sooooooooo glad you get to share your home and your “fireside” with a good friend this weekend! Have fun you two! Maybe I’ll get to share in your “fireside” soon!
Sharing our “firesides” really is what it is all about.
